Letter from Lois
Here I am again, on my deck, baby blue birds sitting overhead on the pergola (oops!), begging for just anyone to drop a goody into their gaping mouths! These lovely little blue babies bring to mind again the spring, early summer, beautiful flower colors.
I think it would be wonderful to create chemo and newborn size hats for this season using these delightful colors in softer yarns. At the shop we have Caron Simply Soft, Bernat Soft Baby, even Red Heart has one now called Soft. With the warmer season, these lighter weight yarns will be perfect for a head covering that does its job without causing too much warmth. Just one thing, be sure to try on your chemo hat to be certain it is long enough to cover your ears. And those baby hats, not preemie size, not toddler size but just right, just stretchy enough to fit a 6 pounder on up to a 12 pounder...amazing how large some of those new babies are these days!
Give this some thought and come "shopping" at our location on Westbriar Drive. Hope to see you there soon
